Delie, Anna, George, and I had our music recital a couple of weeks ago. The four of us have been taking from the Smith family for two years, and we love it--especially because our teachers encourage us to play together. Thank you, Smiths!
The four of us played Send the Light.  (You can watch it here.)
George played the mandolin.  I really like the way it adds to our music. 
 Anna accompanied us on the piano.
I love playing the violin with Delie!

Anna and I also played a duet--Slavonic Dance.  We had fun playing together, but we collapsed after we finished :) .
I look forward to next year!

To the most wonderful mommy in the world

Dear Mommy,
Happy Mother's Day!  We are so blessed to have you as our mommy.  You have such a servant's heart--getting up in the night with littles, grading math books for hours on end, and soooo much more.  You teach us to love others more than we love ourselves, and you not only preach, but practice it as well.  I want to be like you!
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
and let her works praise her in the gates.
